I have a Windows 7 software, existing in the iso format. Now I want to extract it to run as a host OS using VMWare.
How to extract iso so that it can run as a virtual machine?
You don't need to extract the ISO. You simply set the CD-Rom device in the virtual machine to load an image. Then point that image to the location of your Windows 7 ISO. When the virtual machine is powered on, it will load the Windows 7 ISO as if it were a CD. You should then be able to install Windows 7 normally.
